We are a car club for enthusiasts of first-generation Pontiac Firebirds (1967, 1968 and 1969.) We get together in the Chicago area and Midwest for various shows, events and cruises. We started meeting in September of 2013, and had seven first generation cars together at our first official event – a cruise night in Rolling Meadows.
“I would like to start a Chicago Area First Generation Firebird (FGF) Club. I can’t imagine anything more exciting than a show with 100+ FGF cars, or a cruise like the Cannonbird Run that was done a few years ago, done right here in the Midwest. I envision a club with members mostly from the Midwest with a passion for first generation Firebirds – with a desire to join a Chicago area club for shows and events. Please let me know if you would be interested in this idea, and if you could help in any way.”
Our club agenda is simple:
- Enjoy the camaraderie of getting together with our cars and other first-generation Firebird owners and enthusiasts. Regular meeting at established car shows and cruise-in’s. Having our own cruises, or weekend lunch or dinner cruises, etc.. We will be meeting at least once a month throughout the year. See our upcoming events HERE.
- Be a resource for new FGF owners and anyone interested in restoring a first-generation Firebird. Our website is a tool for people to learn more information about us, the cars, the Pontiac brand and how to join our club.
- Once a year have a larger regional FGF show. Our vision is to draw cars from 4-6 hours away, from all over Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana and Missouri.
- Keep it simple, keep it inexpensive.
